Formentera Lady

London Spanish Film Festival Spring Weekend

UK PREMIERE


Formentera has been for decades a hippie refuge and it is here that Samuel lives. An ageing man, he has been trying to avoid responsibilities and commitments and making a precarious living off his banjo playing, smoking and drinking too much. One day his daughter arrives by surprise with her son and with the intention of leaving the ten year old child with Samuel while she goes to France to try a new job. Sacristán delivers, as usual, a superb performance as a battered man who realises his failures in life. This is the début feature film of Pau Durà, a well established actor, who had previously directed a number of shorts. The film, which shares the title with a song by King Crimson, benefits from a beautiful as well as realistic photography
